A Perfect Place to Visit

In 1864 expansion of Liverpool docks required the Observatory to be moved to Bidston Hill. The observatory provided Liverpool with an accurate time and weather forecasts by studying the stars. As late as 1969, a noon cannon, operated by Bidston by telegraph was fired at Birkenhead, to enable the people of Liverpool to set their clocks.

Bidston Windmill, complete with sails, is visible from all over the Wirral. It was built to replace an earlier mill destroyed in 1791 and worked until about 1875.

Tam O'Shanter Cottage was built around 300 years ago.  Its name comes from a stone carving of the poem Tam O'Shanter by Robert Burns, which adorns a wall on the site.  Four acres around the cottage have been developed as a city farm known as the Tam O'Shanter Urban Farm.
